Diolch a nos da

So Wales will go home having finished fourth at this World Cup, a prize they would probably have taken before the tournament began.

Apologies if this sounds as if I'm pissing on Welsh fireworks but, despite being praised to the rafters by the media and the hysteria generated by the quarter final victory over the Irish, the bare facts show that Wales ultimately came up short at this tournament.

That Wales have some talented young players is not in doubt but, having lost to South Africa, France and Australia, the jury is still out on the question of whether this so-called “Golden Generation” can deliver in tight games against the top teams.

Just saying…

Now if Wales just had a kicker...it bit Wales against both France and Australia.

Came up short???? Wales far exceeded our own and everyone else's expectations before the RWC started. Can't believe you wrote that - anyone would think you are English :-)

You're so right Steve - but Wales did have a kicker - he damaged his shoulder before the semi - that's what lost them the semi final!
